A member of the recruiting class of 2014, Woodall, who holds an offer from Louisiana Tech, is making the camp rounds, all in an effort to impress prospective schools.

He was in Oxford on Saturday. Ole Miss held a senior camp, the first in a series of camps that will conclude later this week. As for his remaining schedule, he'll make additional stops at Memphis and Mississippi State, with visits to Southern Miss, Alabama and LSU already behind him.

"I'm hearing from Ole Miss, Mississippi State, USM, Louisiana Tech, LSU, Florida State and Arkansas State," he said, adding that schools are eager to see him in person before extending an offer.

"They're really waiting for me to come to camp. I just want to show them I can play ball."

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Woodall said schools are recruiting him as a quarterback, though he's versatile enough, and willing, to move to another position.

Woodall, who stars for McComb High School, threw for 1,721 yards and 20 touchdowns last season. He rushed for 219 yards, adding six touchdowns on the ground.

"They're all recruiting me as a quarterback," he said. "Mainly, I'd like to stay at quarterback, but I'll do whatever to help the team win."

What he's looking for in a school is simple: Style of play matters, as does the depth chart at his desired position.

Ole Miss is well positioned at quarterback with the return of junior Bo Wallace, who started all 13 games last season, completing 235 of 368 passing attempts.

He totaled the second-most total yards (3,384), third-most passing yards (2,994) and fourth-most touchdown passes (22) in a single season in school history.

The Rebels finished the year 7-6 in his debut season, including a win over Pittsburgh in the BBVA Compass Bowl in January. Behind Wallace are senior Barry Brunetti and sophomore Maikhail Miller, as well as freshmen Ryan Buchanan and Devante Kincade, a pair of former four-star prospects.

Woodall said Ole Miss' fast-paced offense suits him well. The Rebels were fifth in the Southeastern Conference in total offense in 2013, averaging 423.8 yards per game and 31.5 points per game.

"Most of all, I look at the offense they run and how many quarterbacks they're recruiting and signed the year before," Woodall said. "(Ole Miss), they run the same kind of offense we run. I feel like I'd fit in pretty well."
